What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I’m a commercial real estate investment sales broker. I represent sellers in the disposition of their properties. I plan to get more listings and sell more properties. 

How do you unwind from a busy day? Exercise, spend time outdoors, play with my 18-month old daughter, have an ice cold beer or glass of wine with my wife and habitually write my “to do” list for the next day which helps me feel productive and unwound before bed.
